On Monday we rolled out a new partnership which brings daily deals to the UK student population. The site, VouchMANIA.com, has been developed in conjunction with the 2Study Foundation, a charity that provides university students in England and Wales with ‘means tested’ hardship awards that range from £500 to £3,000.
Initially the site will be marketed to 250,000 university students from a group of supporting universities over the next few weeks through a new student social networking site money2study.com. Eighty per cent of net profits generated from the site will be donated to the 2Study Foundation.
We’re delighted to be working with the VouchMANIA.com team and the 2Study Foundation by providing access to our deals aggregation platform. Students have not been heavily targeted by daily deal websites until now but we expect to see strong uptake, particularly because all purchases will help fellow students in need.
